(CNN) -- Archaeologists believe a desert site in Jordan may contain the ruins of the elusive King Solomon's Mines.

Researchers using carbon dating techniques at Khirbat en-Nahas in southern Jordan discovered that copper production took place there around the time King Solomon is said to have ruled the Israelites.

The research findings were reported in this week's issue of the journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which came out Monday.




This is nice and all, but it's like saying they've found the tree in Sherwood Forest that Robin Hood lived under, AFAIK, King Solomon is a pseudo-mythological character.

Good call, Velvet.

One would think that "researchers" would first determine the existence of Solomon prior to "finding" anything that was supposed to belong to him.
